BC Ski Resort Mountain Facts

When you plan your Canada ski vacation to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort you are coming to the “Champagne Powder Capital of Canada”TM.

Each year at Kicking Horse we are lucky enough to receive on average more than 7 meters (23 feet) of some of the lightest, driest and deepest powder snow on the planet. The majestic mountains surrounding us, and our phenomenal snow pack, are the reasons why our area has such historic mountain culture. It’s also why we are surrounded by the highest concentration of beautiful back-country lodges, off piste skiing, and mechanized ski operations (both cat and heli) in all of Canada.
